Letting the creativitiy flow!

I just LOVE to see creativity flow through through people, especially my children! Give your kiddos a few items, and watch their creativity flow, I tell you- you will be amazed. But be open and ready for a mess, and allot for some serious cleanup time.

Recently, while the boys were playing in their little pool on the back patio, I gave them washable paint, and some paintbrushes. Everything (including the play car, the pool water, the back door, mommys feet, and eachother) was red and blue, and eventually purple! They had a super colorful time!

Then I gave the girls a bunch of blocks to lay out and build. I was shocked with the end product. They built a village for their Littlest Pet Shop animals. They got flowered branches off our Crape Mrytle trees, and added all kinds of things. We had this set up to enjoy and play with for days!

And last, mommy got THIS! Havent started getting creative with the machine yet, just still trying to figure out how in the world to make it work!! Soon, I will make my first pillow, or curtain, and when I do, I will post it online!
